Bentley Zhao’s New Empire Real Estate Development filed plans for its 49-story condominium tower at 131-141 East 47th Street in Midtown East.

The residential building will span over 151,000 square feet and include 122 apartments, according to a permit application filed with the Department of Buildings on Wednesday.

Three apartments will be on each of the second through 12th floors and the 14th through 35th floors. Two apartments will be on each of the 37th through 47th floors, and the 48th floor will house one unit, the filing shows. Last year, the developer initially sought to construct 138 apartments on the site.

The tower will feature a gym, kids room, tenant lounge, outdoor recreation and a sunken garden, according to the filing.

SLCE Architects is serving as the project’s architect.

Sunset Park-based New Empire Real Estate has developed condo buildings and hotels in Brooklyn and Manhattan, including a seven-story building at 409 West 45th Street in Hell’s Kitchen, according to its website.

Neither New Empire Real Estate nor SLCE were immediately available for comment.
